Educational phases
I am an artist educator specialising in sequential art, such as comics, graphic novels, and manga. I love introducing new audiences to this exciting medium, and have led art workshops at schools, libraries, festivals and events for over 10 years. I offer commissioned art, workshops for all ages and abilities, and CPD for educators of all disciplines who wish to know more about using comics in the classroom. More of my art and previous projects can be found on my website:


'We have worked with Irina on several occasions over the past two years, as a workshop leader and Manga illustrator. She has most recently worked with us on our Comic Book Windows project, funded by Arts Council England. Irina produced 60 new illustrations to be exhibited in the Babylon Gallery windows; 36 to be coloured-in by members of the public and two sets of 12 which were inspired by poems submitted as part of the project. Through-out this project, Irina has worked professionally, keeping to deadlines and with clear communication.'
